But his future in the sport is unclear as Thorpe and his family focus on his recovery.

Graham Thorpe recently became seriously ill and is currently being treated in hospital, the Professional Cricketers Association said in a statement released at the request of his family.

His prognosis is unclear at this stage and we request privacy for him and his family at this time.

Our thoughts are with Graham and his family.

Left-handed Surrey was known as one of the best English players of his generation, playing exactly 100 tests and scoring 16 centuries before retiring in 2005.

Everyone at the club’s thoughts are with Graham, his wife Amanda and family at the moment, Surrey wrote.

He is an icon of the English game, known to millions of cricket fans and a forever favorite son of Surrey CCC.

Thorpe began a coaching career in Australia, working with the likes of Steve Smith and David Warner at NSW before joining the England and Wales Cricket Board as a batting coach.

Support for the popular coach poured in on social media after the announcement.

He worked as a senior assistant under Australian Trevor Bayliss and Chris Silverwood, and this winter stepped up to lead the team in the Sydney Test against Australia due to Silverwood’s COVID diagnosis.

England withdrew the match to avoid a series of whitewashes.

Thorpe left his role at the end of the Ashes, but indicated he intended to stay in the international arena by taking the job in Afghanistan in March.

We stand with Graham, his family and friends in this critical situation, the Afghanistan Cricket Board said.

The thoughts and wishes of the Afghan nation and the ACB are with Graham and his family for his speediest recovery.
